Selecting a post format automatically changes a style or appearance of the post provided you theme supports them. These post formats are all available for theme developers, but you may not include support for individual post formats, so you may not see these post formats choosers at all or the designer of your theme will not create a specific style for each post format. In which case, you won’t see much difference when choosing between them. The posy format determines how post displayed on your site.
